Census ranks Seattle among whitest big cities
Seattle and Portland are at or near the top of the 50 largest U.S. cities for the percentages of their residents who are white. Portland was No. 1, Seattle No. 5.

Along with Portland, Seattle is among large U.S. cities in which the highest proportions of residents describe themselves as non-Hispanic white, based on 2010 census data.

In Seattle, 66 percent of all residents fit that category — the fifth-highest rate among the nation's 50 largest cities — higher even than Wichita, Kan., and Minneapolis.

"This Week in Racist Neighborhoods: Trying to force "young thugs" out, and a super-racist comment thread about Wallingford."

This Week in Racist The Stranger: Ignoring the black on white hate crime in Green Lake that happened on the same day while reporting on a white person using the word "thug". You never reported on any of the black mob attacks that have been happened in your neighborhood, including the one that occurred 2 blocks from your office that nearly killed the victim.
